During the summer and fall of 1958, Philippa had lots of engagements, but most of her time was spent preparing for her first around-the-world tour. She had performed on four continents, but she had never circled the globe for consecutive engagements. The journey began in December 1958 and finished at the end of March 1959, covering over forty thousand miles. Philippa was fascinated by the Orient but the next stage of her journey exemplified the pressures and hardships she had to bear so often. Philippa stayed in Elisabethville only forty-eight hours and then she travelled to the Belgian Congo and later on to French Brazzaville. Then her last stop was again on the continent of Africa.
